1) You have a long conversation about the advantages of CC in light of the 2nd amendment with someone and they can't tell you are CC--and you don't tell them.

2) You preach at church wearing a sweater vest and dress shirt instead of a suit and no notices.

3) You are sitting at your desk at work and think, "Wait! Did I forget to put on my EDC gun?!" And then you feel your waist and are like, "Oh duh! Didn't even feel it on my belt in its IWB holster!"

4) Your 3-year old son stops bumping his head on your EDC's grip and trains himself to run and give you a hug on your left side. :smile:

What do y'all have to add to the list?

Your kids know to cover their ears if daddy ever draws his gun. Hehe

My daughters have trained themselves as well not to run any part of themselves into my pistol. Unfortunately they had to learn the hard way...

5) Your wife has to ask if you are carrying.
I used to love it when my wife had to ask if I was carrying or not, or if she was surprised when I removed my EDC at the end of the day. However, she knows now that it's strange for me to not have my EDC on, so she stopped asking and is actually surprised if I don't CC, which is rare.

I had to teach my girlfriend to walk on my left side and hold my left hand. It would help if she could learn her right from her left better though.

Funny about the church thing. I also carry at church, on stage, wearing an undershirt and a light, long-sleeve button-up shirt.

We will be out shopping and my wife will put her arm around my waist, remember that I'm carrying, give my EDC a light pat, and then hold my hand. I think she likes knowing that I'm doing the best we can to keep our loved ones safe.

My wife knows that unless I'm naked....I'm carrying. No need to ask. It did take awhile for her to get used to me carrying in my home but I explained that 100% of home invasion robberies happen in the home. She laughed and started to understand ;-)

The kids bumping into my grip still happens occasionally and they are 7 now but they mostly hug me on the left side as well.

My wife isn't a big fan of my gun, so it was an added incentive to conceal well so i didn't have to go through the whole, "why do you need a gun" discussion.

It took a long, long time, but my wife now finally says "You have your gun with you, right?"
That gives me a bit of hope! Did you do anything special to help with that process?

My wife likes to lean against me whenever we're watching tv/movies and she is just now learning to sit on the left side so she doesn't keep getting poked by my MP40
I keep my smartphone on the left side of my belt, and my wife complains about how uncomfortable it is to lean up against. She doesn't even notice the full size 1911 when she cuddles up on my right side.
